Midsummer cakes

Last weekend, we celebrated midsummer here in Finland. Usually the weather is really testing our nerves be being rainy, windy and cold! But.. This year, Finnish summer really showed the best of itself! It was such a beautiful weather during the whole weekend, sun was shining, it was over 20 degrees celsius. Perfect!

So what would be a better way to celebrate this, eating cakes of course! 🙂

I made three different cakes for the weekend, a raspberry-blueberry cheesecake, a strawberry moussecake and a blueberry cake. They were really yummy!

I’ll let the photos do the talking for now. Have a great week!








Strawberries, cardamom and vanilla icecream!

I hope you have had a lovely weekend! I got the chance to meet a couple of dear friends during my weekend, and this is also why I thought to try out a new recipe. 🙂

There have been some really nice recipes in baking magazines, where I also got an inspiration for this cake.


This cake ended up nice and moist inside with a lovely crisp on top of the cake. Also the strawberries kept their taste well despite the fact that it was baked.

A really nice cake to enjoy on a summer weekend with friends!
